Plant activators are chemicals that activate plant defense genes by providing signals via the signal transduction pathway mediated by salicylic acid. Plant activation is essential to resist attacks from pests such as fungal or bacterial pathogens or insects. These products do not directly attack pathogens but trigger biochemical modifications in plants so they may defend against pests.
The rising prevalence of pests due to pollution has propelled the need for plant activators to protect crops. The increasing resistance of insects and weeds to chemicals, high cost of developing new chemical pesticides, and government regulations to limit chemical usage to prevent ecological damage are leading to the growing demand for biological plant activator products. Rapid industrialization and urbanization, rising energy demand, and a growing population have resulted in arable land being used for housing projects, industries, mines, and rearing livestock, among others.
However, the excessive use of plant activators results in salt, nutrient, and heavy metal accumulation, which may affect plant growth, soil quality, water quality, animal health, human health, and the environment. Additionally, the continuous use of plant activators may result in the accumulation of chemicals in the soil, which may lead to acid rain and pollution, making the soil unfit for farming. Hence, the dependence on plant activators for crop production, especially chemical activators due to the limited availability of biological activators, is expected to restrain plant activators market growth during the forecast period.
